DUI crash victims’ family files $45 million claim against city

DANSCHULTE2SEATTLE — Members of the Schulte family believe the city of Seattle is to blame for an April crash that killed Dennis and Judy Schulte and badly injured their daughter-in-law Karina and 10-day-old grandson Elias in the Wedgwood neighborhood.

The driver who hit them, Mark W. Mullan, was on probation and under supervision of Seattle Municipal Court after a Dec. 25, 2012, DUI arrest. The Schulte family says the city didn’t do enough to keep Mullan off the road, in particular, making sure he had installed a court ordered ignition interlock device in his truck.

Katherine Schubert-Knapp, the public information officer for the city’s Risk Management Division, would not comment on the claim. The city has 60 days to respond before a lawsuit is officially filed.

Coming up on Q13 FOX News at 4 and 5 p.m. , hear from the attorney representing the Schulte family.
